I am on the hunt for pencil-y fragrance.
i was in a perfumania and mentioned this to the guy at the counter and he pulled out GPH I and sprayed on a card telling me it was discontinued. I loved it. I have since bought a small bottle of ebay but it's sweeter (almost a little cola-y) than I'd like.
I've picked up a handful of other fragrances, blindbuy's and samples, and they just aren't hitting exactly what I'm looking for, maybe I can't describe it correctly but i really want like if you sniffed the penciel shavings from a sharpener.
things i've tried that just aren't getting it done, i love most of these, but they're not as dry i think as I'd like:
GPH 1 - almost it, but a littley cola syrup-y that kinda makes it annoying close miss to what I'm looking for
carbone de balmain- very nice,definitely has that pencil in it but too fruity
montana graphite - ok, but weird wood sweetness I don't find appealing
moonshine - a little sawdusty and too peppery
cdg man 2 - close to gph 1, i think closer to the sent i'm looking for, but almost smells like BO at points
anyone got any other ideas to take a shot at? I mean i've googled around and read the "smells like a pencil" which lead me to a lot of these, but u want smells like only pencil shavings.
